Comment: Sigh

(See in situ)


The fuel and weight savings are tremendous, but Chan says we shouldn’t expect to see cars like the Black Widow outside of competitions. This baby, as cool as it is, is purely academic. “By no means are we developing cutting edge technology that will be used in future vehicles,” he said. “More than anything, our club is training engineers to push the boundaries of efficiency so when they enter the working world, it will be no different in how they approach other designs.”

What's that? They're using a 3 hp engine and the car weighs less than a person? Top speed 35mph without changing the gear ratios out and losing mpg?
